Pike Safari- Lake Åsnen
A Guided Fishing tour with a local guide on Lake Åsnen.
Discover the unique archipelago of Lake Åsnen. The lake is about 155 km², with over 1000 islands. It is a shallow lake that guarantees a rich bird life and good fishing waters. Lake Åsnen is famous for good pike fishing with many catches being over 1 meter long. There are many shallow bays, but there are also areas with deeper waters. The lake offers everything an angler could want and there is huge potential for catching fish and big ones at that.
We begin the boat tour early in the morning. The local guide will have the boat and all the equipment ready, he will give also you instructions before we leave the harbour on Getnö. Everybody on board will each get a life jacket and full fishing equipment. Peaceful and quiet, the morning fog lifts as the sun slowly rises. With any luck, you may you hear the calling of the Blackthroated over the calm waters.
The experienced guide will be navigating between the different islands in Åsnen National Park and around the islands of Getnö. You will be able to fish in different places where the pikes are waiting. The fishing guide knows the waters like the back of their hand and will guide you to the “hottest” fishing spots. You will be spinnfishing, trolling and sometimes vertical fishing on the tour.
The Osprey is another fish that can be found in these waters. It is amazing seeing how the osprey catches its morning fish or seeing them fly easily with their v-shaped wings.
The guide will anchor somewhere in a peaceful bay and will serve you a “Småländsk” breakfast on board.
The boat tour lasts about 4 hours and then the guide drives back to the harbour on Getnö – Lake Åsnen Resort. After the tour you may stretch your legs on the walking trails on the island or go to the country café for lunch.
